Pilot Program for Parents of Adolescents and Teens

PAT Group

PEPS is excited to embrace the opportunity and responsibility to support families with adolescents and teens in a unique pilot program! Parents will be able to participate in a FREE six-week pilot program that will include time to share highs and lows, as well as feature topics for discussion each week. Each meeting will be led by a Group Leader with a background in adolescent development and psychology, trained in group facilitation.

In this series, our organization will be using the program to learn and adapt, as we strive to make this an ongoing series, and enhance the curriculum continuously. Be sure to participate in the pre- and post-program surveys to share your feedback and help this program grow!
